A RESOURCE FOR ALABAMA SENIORS WITH MEMORY LOSS AND THEIR CARE GIVERS
Area Agency on Aging (AAA)
An Area Agency on Aging (AAA) serves as a resource for older adults and their families and caregivers. One goal of AAAs is to help individuals stay in their homes as long as possible.
Once you have identified the AAA that serves your county in Alabama, you should contact them and ask about the services they offer. Your local AAA may be able to connect you to needed services, such as:
• sitter services
• transportation services.
Your local AAA will be familiar with both state and county services available. They also know about services provided by aging related businesses in your area. AAAs often provide education on aging specific topics to older adults and their caregivers.
Knowing what services your local AAA can provide will assist you in making a plan for the future.
